President Coolidge has confirmed that an executive order to form a new American Expeditionary Force consisting of US Navy and Marines has been issued. It is believe the force is headed to the China-Russian border to protect American interests there. The Fifth Marine Division has been activated and has begun training near Papua New Guinea, (photo below)
General Jack "Mad Dog" McCreery, shown below with his dog Bomber, has been asked to lead this force of experienced Marines backed by a small fleet of US Navy gun boats and landing craft.
When asked to comment, General McCreery simply said his force would be ready to "eat nails and shit lead" when the time comes.
